You're off to a great start! I see that you've already booked some books by color on your media stand. You might put some larger books out and stick with one accent color stacked vertically to add some visual interest. You can break up the shelves with pictures, vases, other pieces - just pick an accent color and keep weaving it in. (if you do go away from the red family, I'm a huge fan of greens with chocolate, but that's just me.

I so miss Domino! In the meantime, I keep up with House Beautiful, Fast Company, Wired, and Food and Wine. I've tried some on the iPad but it's just not the same. I'll keep my paper magazines for as long as I can! Oh, and the return of Gourmet would be welcome as well.

Great post! I used to keep all of my books (over 600) one several big shelves. When we moved into a larger house several years ago, I moved part of them up to our loft and have the rest in several rooms throughout the house. I find there's always something to read and I rotate them through various rooms often enough to keep things fresh.

We have a big living room, but we did a couch, coffee table, two slipper chairs (that are still pretty large with a nice pattern) and capped it off with a very modern recliner (although it doesn't look like a recliner at all) at the end. Classic, yet cozy, particularly since recliner faces the fireplace. We love it!

Agreed! Paperless Post is fantastic. I believe the first 25 invites to an event are free and you have so many custom options. We recently used these for our Halloween Party invites and all of my guests loved them!
